Hardox® 500 Tuf

The new generation of wear plate for tipper and mining truck bodies, attachments, containers and other wear environments

Hardox® 500 Tuf wear plate is the latest upgrade in the Hardox® range. It delivers exceptional strength, hardness and toughness in a single wear plate, guaranteed.

And although it’s a newcomer to the Hardox® family, it has proved its worth around the world in tippers, trucks, mining trays, containers, buckets, agricultural equipment, liners and wear parts of all kinds. Hardox® 500 Tuf combines the best properties from Hardox® 450 and Hardox® 500. The result? A wear plate with no real competition on the market.

Hardox® 500 Tuf stands tough against wear

Day in and out, Hardox® 500 Tuf stands tough against shocks, jolts, bangs, nicks and jabs. This translates into increased service life for your customers. 

Not only does it deliver high wear resistance – Hardox® 500 Tuf is also tough enough to perform as a structural wear steel in heavy-duty tipper and truck bodies. This offers new opportunities for reducing or eliminating supporting structures, allowing Hardox® 500 Tuf to take the load instead. Its high performance is also proven in cold climates and freezing conditions.

Rock-solid benefits of Hardox® 500 Tuf

Manufacturers using Hardox® 500 Tuf can choose to increase wear life or increase payload – or both. Using a thinner plate of Hardox® 500 Tuf can easily give you 10–15% greater load capacity for a dumper or container. Staying with the same thickness, on the other hand, will provide a 30% longer service life or more, depending on the abrasive material.

Hard and tough, guaranteed

Guaranteed narrow Brinell hardness of 475-505 HBW. Proven performance in tough or freezing conditions, with a guaranteed impact energy of 27 J at -20°C (20 ft-lb at -4°F), with a typical value of 45 J at -40°C (33 ft-lb at -40°F). Tough enough to perform as a structural material.


Longer service life

30–50% longer service life over Hardox® 450. 85–100% longer service life than Hardox® 400 (according to SSAB’s WearCalc and TippCalc calculations based on sliding wear with granite).

Lighter Bodies

 Reduced wear plate thicknesses with high wear resistance saves weight and increases productivity.
